O Travellers!

O Travellers!, United Kingdom

O travellers from somewhere else to here, Rising from Sheffield Station and Sheaf Square To wander through the labyrinths of air, Pause now, and let the sight of this sheer cliff Become a priming-place which lifts you off To speculate What if…? What if…? What if…? Could-shadows drag their hands across the white; Rain prints the sudden darkness of its weight; Sun falls and leaves the bleaching evidence of light. Your thoughts are like this too: as fixed as words Set down to decorate a blank façade And yes, as words are too, all soon transferred To greet and understand what lies ahead – The city where your dreaming is re-paid, the lives which wait unseen as yes, unread. WHAT IF? Andrew Motion Off the Shelf 2007
